Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

Undo ports/165457 to not violate POLA.  As far as I knew, the PR
was to test what happened when we did eventually delete these two
ports, not to delete them immediately.

A subsequent commit will add appropriate deprecation messages.

- Remove lang/perl5.8 (12/16/2008 EOL) and lang/perl5.10 (08/23/2009 EOL)
- lang/5.12 (default) is in Maint mode and lang/5.14 is GA right now.
- The final UNcommitted portition of this PR will move the default perl
  to lang/perl5.14 but
  must be fixed or marked BROKEN 1st.

Update to 5.8.6.  Also:

- redirect output from h2ph to /dev/null [1];
- fix File::Path insecure file/directory permissions [2];
  this resolves CAN-2004-0452
- for OSVERSION < 500036, create symlinks in /usr/bin not only for
  perl and suidperl, but also for a2p, c2ph, find2perl, h2ph, h2xs,
  perlbug, perlcc, perldoc, pl2pm, pod2html, pod2latex, pod2man,
  pod2text, s2p, and splain;  perl and suidperl are still enough for
  more recent FreeBSD versions [3];
- clean up created symlinks upon deinstallation [4];
- try to cleanup symlinks created by older versions of lang/perl5 and
  lang/perl5.8, during both installation and deinstallation [5];
- added support for DISABLE_BSDPAN environment variable [6];
- be explicit about use.perl usage after installation of 4.X systems
- respect __MAKE_CONF partially (the build-time value is used) [8];
- fix threaded build - respect PTHREAD_CFLAGS and PTHREAD_LIBS [9].
- use.perl is now the same as pkg-install is now the same as
  pkg-deinstall;  apart from the changes already mentioned above, this
  is a shell script now;
- use.perl's logic is also simplified in several ways [10];
- fix a BSDPAN bug [11].

Outstanding issues: Module::Build support for BSDPAN, SU_CMD support (PR
70831), PR 64963 (partially), and anything else that I forgot.

   with p5 ports for modules included with perl.
5. Use PREFIX/SITE_PERL_REL instead of SITE_PERL in the Makefile.
6. Switch to bzipped sources.
7. Other small adjustments.

Update to 5.8.1.


Make suidperl optional (ENABLE_SUIDPERL knob).  Switch to perlmalloc by
default, unless threaded perl is built, to improve performance.
Modernize pkg-plist (switch to SITE_PERL where possible).  Update WWW.

Many thanks to foxfair who prepared most of this update.

Merge from lang/perl5:

    Add two knobs:

    WITH_PERL_MALLOC - to compile with perl's own malloc, as opposed to
    the freebsd system malloc. Some might find this useful, since perl's
    malloc is marginally faster in typical cases, and orders of
    magnitude faster in degenerate cases. Use with care.

    WITH_GDBM - to compile with gdbm support.
